12/27/2019 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic (Ages 12-14)
Bradford is an athletic and talented 2-way prospect that has made several adjustments in a year. At SS, Bradford fields the ball in front of his body, he has a quick exchange, and gets into a strong throwing position. Continuing to be on time with his prep step, and improving his first step quickness will improve his range to the ball. At the plate, Bradford starts in a relaxed stance, he loads his hands back into the drive position, and he makes consistent hard contact. He has a middle approach and attacks the inside part of the ball but he needs to continue to rotate his lower half. On the bump, Bradford gathers over the rubber, he separates on time, and has a loose arm action. He throws all three pitches for strikes and works off his fastball. He needs to continue to ride his back leg down hill and have a stronger glove side. Bradford will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
12/27/2018 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic - Session 2 (Ages 12-14)
Bradford is an athletic and talented 2025 2-way prospect that was eager to learn. At the hot corner, Bradford starts in a squared position, has a clean exchange, and makes the routine play. He needs to be one time with his prep step, anticipate the ball off the bat, and improve his first step to the ball. At the plate, Bradford starts in a tall stance, loads his hands back, and keeps a middle approach. He needs to keep a quiet head, attack the inside part of the ball, and create backside drive with his lower half. Continuing to keep his head down at contact and top hand on the bat longer will prevent him from opening up his front shoulder. On the bump, Bradford has good mound presence and attacks both sides of the plate. He gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and works downhill. He needs to continue to use his change up and drive his backside toward the plat when throwing. Bradford will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
